We hope you enjoy our monthly eNewsletter, spotlighting excellence in our students and employees!
Student Spotlight
Brandon Merritt
Third Grade
Fort Meigs Elementary School
Boy smiling“Brandon Merritt truly exemplifies the meaning behind the Jacket Way,” shared Third Grade Teacher Jenny Rogers. “For example when we are playing a math game, Brandon is always the first person to jump up and have a student who doesn't have a group join his group. When playing out at recess, Brandon includes all students no matter what their abilities are. Brandon is a very humble and kind-hearted student. Brandon is such a wonderful example of the Jacket Way that he is a peer role model for students in his class. I have been so blessed to have Brandon Merritt in my classroom this year.”
“Brandon is just a fantastic young man!” shared Marjoe Cooper, Principal, Fort Meigs Elementary School. “He is always looking to ensure that all of his classmates are appreciated and supported on a daily basis. Brandon is friendly, caring and most certainly a role model for not only his classmates but also our young people, in general. Brandon is what we want our young Yellow Jackets to be in that he is always respectful, responsible and ready at Fort Meigs Elementary School! He absolutely personifies what the Jacket Way means!”
We are happy to have you at Fort Meigs, Brandon!
Employee Spotlight
Mary Neely
School Counseling Department
Perrysburg High School
Woman smiling“Mary Neely, who is one of our School Counseling Department secretaries, is a rock star!” shared Aaron Cookson, Principal, Perrysburg High School. “No matter how difficult the job or situation, Mary handles it with care, compassion and true professionalism. Mary's positivity radiates throughout the school to all staff members and students. She is reliable, super intelligent, charismatic and can ALWAYS be seen with a beaming smile on her face. We are fortunate to have Mary Neely as a member of Team PHS!”
“Mary is usually the first to arrive and the last to leave,” shared Michelle Shiels, Counseling Department Secretary, Perrysburg High School. “She is a pillar of strength and leadership, but does so quietly. Staff and students alike know they can approach Mary with a problem, frustration or question – and she is always willing to offer advice or help. Mary never shows that she is stressed, overworked or unhappy. We are so lucky to work beside Mary and have her constant calm, helpful and nurturing nature.”
Thank you, Mary!
